Based on the successful on-farm workshops developed in partnership with Rural Action, this workshop will focus on the season creation model developed by Green Edge Gardens. Their innovative use of high tunnel greenhouses and grow rooms ensures a year-round selection of organic seasonal vegetables, microgreens, and specialty mushrooms. Harvesting through the winter enables Green Edge Gardens to offer a successful winter community supported agriculture (CSA) program and take advantage of higher off-season prices and reduced competition. Farmers Kip and Becky Rondy and Dan Kneier will demonstrate how utilizing their practical, real world-tested season creation techniques can bring these off-season advantages to your farm, provide you with year-round cash flow, and eliminate the need for off-farm income. All attendees will receive a detailed Season Creation book, planting and harvest calendar, and folder with handouts and resources.

Cost and Registration: $80 for OEFFA members, $100 for non-members. Pre-registration is required. Space is limited. To register, go to www.oeffa.org/q/seasoncreationcincy.

This workshop is one of 21 farm tours and workshops OEFFA is offering this summer as part of the 2016 Ohio Sustainable Farm Tour and Workshop Series. In total, the series features 32 farm tours and 10 educational workshops, offered in partnership with The Ohio State University Extension Sustainable Agriculture Team, Advancing Eco Agriculture, Ashtabula Local Food Council, Columbus Agrarian Society, and Our Harvest Research and Education Institute. All tours and workshops are free and open to the public and do not require pre-registration unless otherwise noted. For more information about the series, go to http://www.oeffa.org/q/2016farmtours.
